With limited exclusions, ex-Twitter chief Jack Dorsey said he did not believe in permanent bans on the platform. Elon Musk indicated Tuesday that he would overturn Twitter’s ban on former President Trump after he completed his takeover of the platform.
“Musk claims that @jack agrees with him that individual Twitter users should not be permanently banned. Dan Primack, Axios business editor, tweeted on Tuesday: “Reminder that Dorsey was CEO when such bans were enacted,” he wrote.
“I do agree,” wrote Dorsey in a follow-up tweet. Permanent bans are a failure of ours and don’t function, which I talked about here after the event (and called for a robust social media protocol)”
He retweeted a statement he authored in 2021, after Twitter banned Trump following the Capitol riot of Jan. 6, 2021, in which Trump supporters encouraged by the former president’s bogus assertions about the 2020 election, attempted to stop Congress from certifying the results of the election.
Twitter raised the possibility that Trump’s remarks could stoke more bloodshed in the United States. “I feel this was a good decision for Twitter,” Dorsey said in a statement at the time. As a result of a unique and unavoidable situation, we had to devote all of our efforts to public safety.”
It’s true that a prohibition has actual and serious consequences,” he said. In my opinion, even while there are clear and obvious exceptions, a prohibition on such topics is a failing on our part to encourage healthy dialogue.”
Twitter’s move to ban former President Trump from the company was a “mistake,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk told the Financial Times’ Future of the Car event on Tuesday.
A huge portion of the country was “alienated,” but Trump “didn’t lose his voice,” he claimed.
President Trump should be allowed to return to Twitter, according to the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
“Whether you like him or not, President Trump is one of the most important politicians in this country, and a lot of people want to hear what he has to say. In fact, some of Trump’s most offensive tweets were used as key evidence in lawsuits against him and his administration. Anthony Romero, the head of the ACLU, said, “We know this because we took him to court over 400 times.”
